The New Assistive Tech
Make Learning Awesome for All!
School districts often struggle to develop consistent practices for meeting the assistive needs of special education students. This playful yet professional book will help public school educators select, acquire and implement technology to help all students, but especially those with special needs. The New Assistive Tech is a catalyst for breaking down walls between special education and general education, and will help all educators realize they have tech knowledge (and can build upon that knowledge) that can be used to support students with disabilities. This book: details how an educational team can request assistance to determine technology needs; explains how to conduct and document assessments to help an educational team make informed decisions about technology needs; describes a proactive approach to professional development for individuals and for those who train others on the use of technology; assists individuals or teams in creating an action plan for developing a culture of inclusion; and interweaves stories, songs and other exciting features to make learning fun!
